hi there and welcome here...you looked up the correct dates for the wrong film...in 1930 and 1931 there was a film with the title free and easy... the first one is the first sound feature film staring buster keaton and was released by mgm..the one released in 1931 is the vitaphone short you were looking for..you did a good job looking it up but got the wrong movie

Hello again

well...after researching FREE AND EASY i found no such title in the copyright registrations for 1930 or 1931 but the feature you mentioned.

So does this mean it is public domain? or am I missing something

thanks ;)
